1 9x13-inch cake


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup shortening (such as Crisco®)

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages frozen strawberries, thawed and juice reserved

  • cup water

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Add shortening, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla extract and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes. Fold in strawberries. Pour into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen. Invert carefully onto a serving plate or cooling rack. Let cool, about 30 minutes.

  4. While cake cools, pour reserved strawberry juice in a pan and bring to a boil. Mix water and cornstarch together and add to the juice; cook and stir until sauce thickens. Serve over cake.

Cook's Note:

You can use butter-flavored shortening if desired.
